Dear Dave Gahan

I just seen an interview you did(not sure when it originally aired) where you were talking about some of the harsh things that you read(or heard about), that Depeche Mode fans had written about your solo albums on your forum. I just wanted you to know(if you do read this) that I for one really love and enjoy both your solo albums! Your music invokes such a strong musical and emotional impact in me. This is done both with your amazing voice and your very honest lyrics. As a singer/songwriter I can think of no bigger accomplishment. I just wanted you to know that despite the negative things said, you do have fans out there(like me) who really do love your solo stuff. Thanks so much for your wonderful music, I hope we get more of it in the future!

P.S I seen you live in Toronto for the PM concert ever!

Beautiful post, gahan_fiend!
I agree with you on the whole ( except maybe about Paper Monsters which I'm not too fond of...).
Thanks Dave for the beautiful Hourglass. I too hope we get more of your music in the future. :)

Absolutely agree on how good Dave's solo stuff is.

Dear Dave please don't be disheartened by this, if they don't like it then you can't win them all but for the rest of us (THE MAJORITY) we love it and support you 100%. (A tour in London would be nice - hey had to get that one in - we live in hope).

Keep up the good work, I know having Paper Monsters and Hourglass has enriched my life (OK sounds psycho but you know what I mean), a humble thank you does not really say it enough but it's the best I can do. THANKS DAVE

Dave congratulations on a fantastic album! Anyone who has heard Hourglass, and can then criticize it, obviously wasn't really Listening to it. All the best for the future.

Hello Dave,

Not sure at all that you will have time to read us as you are probably very busy at the moment with Hourglass promotion, but I join here to say the same, that I love your work, your wonderfull voice and spirit, and I love your songs. Very often I love to play your songs and DM's ones on my guitar, and I'm waiting for a tour to come and listen to you in a concert!!!
I didnt't hear the interview but anyway, just think that you can't please to everybody, but that doesn't matter, as we, your fans, will follow you and love your work forever! :p Oh yeahhh!!!

Hourglass is fantastic, the sound is so fresh and creative, i love it and having it playing at home and in the car everyday! I wanna add also that the track "love will leave" on the new single completely blew me away, i dont have the words to do it justice right now but the vocals and melody sent shivers up my spine.

Keep on doing exactly what your doing Dave
